Autumn larder – Pork chops with honey, soy, and chilli

 In Autumn, Meat, Poultry & Game, Pork/Ham

I’ve never been a fan of pork chops, but Ruth at Harris Farm Meats told me this is pretty much the way she cooks them. I always like to as the producer or butcher how they’d cook things as it’s a wonderful way to get recipe ideas, they have a wealth of knowledge and experience. I added a little chilli to Ruth’s suggestion, and served alongside crispy noodles. You could also add stir fry vegetables. Perfect for midweek as it literally takes minutes.

Pork chops with honey, soy, and chilli

(Serves 2)

2 pork chops
2 dsp runny honey
½ tsp chilli flakes
1 dsp soy sauce
Juice of half a lemon

To serve
100g thin egg noodles
2 tsp sesame oil
1 dsp soy sauce

  1. Mix the honey, soy, chilli, and lemon together. Rub over the pork chops and leave to marinade, for at least 30 minutes, preferably two hours;
  2. Heat the grill to medium and grill the chops for 3-4 minutes per side depending on thickness, letting the fat crisp up;
  3. Meanwhile soak the noodles in boiling water for two minutes to soften. In a wok or frying pan heat the sesame oil. Fry the noodles for 1 minute then add the soy sauce and cook for a further minute;
  4. Serve the pork on top of the noodles.
